Kajill is an interdisciplinary artist born and raised in Mohkínstsis, Treaty 7 territory, or what we know to be Calgary, Alberta. Currently, her work explores the intersections of personhood, the Racial Imaginary, and familial narrative and histories as a first-generation Punjabi Sikh woman, born and raised in Canada. Kajill’s artistic journey has never been confined to the use of one medium. As an artist who is vested in the exploration of how different mediums can inform our art practices, she deeply believes in the potential of being an interdisciplinary artist. Her passion for art making started with drawing and then transformed into painting. Upon embarking on more art-research centered goals, she gravitated towards installation and now textile art. In the present moment of her art practice, it is through navigating what she has termed an ‘archive of scrap fabrics’ that she attempts to find ways to thread together stories and memories of the past with the possibilities of where radical imagination can take us in the future. ​​​​​​​
